Mech speaks with BDN, WQCB about using pheromones to control browntail moth

Angela Mech, an assistant professor of forest ecology at the University of Maine, talked with the Bangor Daily News about using browntail moth pheromones to confuse the male moths and reduce mating. WQCB (Q106.5 in Brewer) also spoke with Mech and graduate student Sadia Crosby about their research. The researchers are working to identify the most effective pheromone and to produce a synthetic version.
